Re: Some appreciation for Jeremy Lin..
Man, if Lin wasn't such a TO machine...I can see him easily cracking the top 10 pgs.
But, I think it's best to look at Lin as a hybrid scorer/playmaker. His constant drives to the hole make him susceptible to TOs, but he gets buckets and fouls, causes disruptions in the defense and can get guys open looks. There's been a ton of times where he drives to the hole, drawing the defense in, then kicks it out to the open man for the three...but Garcia has been cold/sick and Parsons hasn't found his three point shot.
I think Lin really misses guys like Patterson and Delfino sometimes.
